I just placed an order with Parrots on the Porch, for two sizes of Organic Parrot Mix, the large and a medium mix. Just over $60.00 for 4&1/2 pounds.

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a better deal on Organic seed mixes. Kindest regards, Mary

Do you have a health food store nearby? I just buy my seeds, nuts, beans and grains in bulk and create my own mix. I think the most expensive ones are still less than $10 per pound.

Dr Foster and Smith have good prices on seed, nuts, and dried fruit and also have mixes available. Here is a link. There shipping is reasonable. I buy 1 pound bags and make my own mix and will give a teaspoon over their regular food every couple days.

Thank you both for the tips. When the Parrots on the Porch order arrives, I'm going to write down the contents of the mix, duplicate the mix at our local Health Food store, and compare the cost.
